Poetry. LGBTQIA Studies. Lonely Christopher dramatically ended a romantic relationship in Père Lachaise Cemetery on Christmas Day. This intense and trenchant verse series, written about the crisis from one January to the next, uses poetry as durational art. This unique break-up book focuses the grief of lost love to develop complex emotional themes in a refreshing rococo style. A generous, achingly gorgeous meditation on loss and loneliness, IN A JANUARY WOULD invites readers to feel everything a person feels as his heart's capacity is deepened by grief.
